Random Friday Morning Thoughts

(Bonus pic since the one below is apparently a repeat)
  • Is this a mistake? Jarhead's blog is open to the unwashed masses!
  • I rarely mention it but, Crazy Texas Mommy's blog is funny.
  • I'm driving a small U-haul truck this weekend. I expect tragedy.
  • A story that makes me cringe every time: Toddler run over in his own driveway in Saginaw. I cannot imagine.
  • Shocking Time cover this week.
  • Hottest weekend of year coming up. Then next week will be a beating as well.
  • You know, if you attach one of those broom stick handles to your paint roller, it makes your job a heck of a lot easier.
  • I mentioned the crash of Flight 191 at DFW Airport a couple of months ago but I was reminded this morning that it killed the driver of a car on highway 114 when it crashed. (It's the 25th Anniversary.)
  • The UIL tested 3,308 high school students last year for steroids. The results released yesterday: Not a single one tested positive. Can we stop the testing now?
  • Gary Cogill says Inception is the best film he has seen in two years. (The director also didMomento Memento so I bet it will make your head hurt.)
  • I'm craving home grown tomatoes. Are there any sellers in Decatur?
  • Richie Whitt ranks the Top 50 "Power Brokers" in DFW sports.
  • The Collin County District Clerk and a lot of her staff get indicted for Organized Crime? If every county employee were indicted for campaigning on county time, we wouldn't have much of a county government left.
  • Remember that NY Giants' receiver in the Super Bowl who caught the desperation pass from Eli Manning against his helmet? That was his last catch. Ever.

I heard that Decatur ISD will be announced as a Recognized district. Can we have a do over on the last six months?

Nice (natural) random pic today. Dig that bikini she has on. I've seen more cotton in an aspirin bottle!

And it's MEmento...not MOmento. Momento is something you should take uno of before posting your random thoughts

government workers shouldn't be spending their time on campaigns, but is organized crime the proper charge there? Sounds like somebody is trying to win votes in the upcoming

INCEPTION is awesome! Excellent picture! If you go see it, hang in there with it. It's hard to follow but pieces begin to come together and in the end... well...WOW! Pay attention during the movie. If you get up for popcorn and coke... you're going to get lost!

YOu know if you and the new wifey want to get out tomorrow. Main street in Grapevine is hoppin on Saturdays and they have a huge farmers market with locally grown produce. Not bad at all!

Why a "do over" 8:54? Recognized is much better than Academically Acceptable. Looks to me like DISD is getting back on track..finally!

I've heard of cutting your nose off to spite your face, but based on that Time cover, the Taliban is taking this saying a little too far. Nothing but barbarians and as long as we keep trying to fight them like politically correct gentlemen, we will never defeat the bastards.

Not a bad day Barry boy. I had some mixed thoughts on it as I was going thru it but over all not to shabby....

B+

On a side note about the Time cover. If anyone doubts why we are over there read that article. I feel we have a responsibilty to stand up for people that cannot stand up for themselves. That is a perfect example of that. All you lefties dont take this as me doing anything more than addressing this war. (though I do feel once Hussein tried to kill an American President he became fair game for an ass kicking)

Can "Recognized" get us turf on the football field?

Did you ever stop to think that the reason no students tested positive for steroids is because they are aware there is the possibility they might be tested?

I had the task of going through the Delta 191 jet (an L1011 Lockeed TriStar) a very big jet after the crash, very devastating, something I will never forget, not even the smell.

TEA will post ratings on their website at 1:00 today. I just checked!

Has anyone heard where Robert Morgan is ?

You can get home grown maters at the produce market in Decatur

Before getting too excited about new campus/district ratings, be aware of TMPI the new formula that allows those students "who failed this time but MIGHT pass next time"
to be counted as passing this year.

And then there is the passing score. Do you remember being passed in a science class when you only got 8 out of 48 questions right, or only 31 of 60 math questions right. Only God knows how low the scores would be if the traditional 70% were applied

According to ST, the number of Exemplary campuses doubled this year thanks to the "new accounting formula."

Parents, if your kid is anything less than Commended on any, I repeat any TAKS test, you need to be raising hell with your kid and his school.

What kind of fool wouldn't want students to received credit for improvement. There are differences in people. We are not equally gifted. It is good that TEA recognizes the work of our schools through such means.

I know the test is more difficult than the ones given only a few years ago. Our teachers are doing an amazing job!

Decatur would be Exemplar if Reeves was in Charge!

You think we might be testing for the wrong illegal drug?

Did you hear what happened at Reunion?

Unbelievable!

That Jarhead is one idiot. I have never read his blog and now I know why.
His nickname indicates he was a marine, 'nuff said.

Regarding: HS Steroid Testing.. No one tested positive, because the HS selected the students they wanted tested, mostly teachers kids and mostly tennis and golf players, not football and power lifting. It is just another game they play. The schools will tell you the students are randomly picked, they are, randomly picked from a list the school gives them to choose from.
